Forging Creativity: Make Jewelry from Junk with Nina Dinoff

September 29, 12:00pm - 1:30pm EDT.


About this FieldTrip

Need a boost of creative energy? Miss doing things by hand? In this workshop, we will use some of the basics of Design Thinking to create a piece of jewelry out of everyday items in your home. Think Project Runway “unconventional challenge.”

This will be an exercise in stretching your creative muscles and learning to look at materials from a new perspective. You will leave the workshop with a renewed appreciation for making a prototype by hand.

What to bring
Have some scissors, paper, and tape handy — feel free to bring some extra things from the junk drawer or recycling bin as well if you like!
